I need to make more money to start hoarding kits! I missed out on BTE Venture 60, GP Ultra Sport 60 and now this. Very sad.

When Walter Morris had it in Louisville, we would go up and wade through the dog turds to find kits, engines and such. He let that little white dog (the one on the canopy sticker) run through the store and do his dooty.

Walter was a character. I had been into RC a few years and got the profile bug. Found Morris Hobbies on the web and gave them a call. I got Walter on his cell while he was driving. We started talking about the MVVS 40 engine and Walter started making engine sounds telling me how this engine transitioned from idle to WOT with no hesitation. He got so excited that he almost ran off the road. He had to pull over and park to finish the conversation.

I drove up to his shop a few months later and he took me out to the flying field to watch some of the locals fly his planes. I had a great time and came home with a Morris the Knife and a MVVS engine. Before that trip I had mistakenly thought the picture of him on his planes was a caricature.

most likely one of the biggies will buy it up like everything else, strip it down, keep what they want and dump the rest.---henry

I too would call and get Walter on the phone.
He was a real caricature, I mean character

I've spoken to Walter, Tony Ayer, and Tom striker, but no Robert?
He must be the current owner?
